We found out yesterday that D has to leave on Monday for Nevada for work again. The plan was that he was going to be gone for two weeks and we weren't sure exactly when those two weeks would be. The plan has changed to "leave on Monday for four weeks because we need a spectroscopy person for the whole four weeks." I am extremely unhappy about this. First of all, I'm going to miss him like crazy. Four weeks? We have never spent four weeks apart. Christmas break was only two weeks. Second of all, I am extremely irritated with the Department of Homeland Security (who oversees this project) because they keep just yanking people around. Details, flight times, project duration, etc. changes daily because when they say jump, everyone jumps. These people that they are pulling from all over the country have families, lives, commitments. Arg. D is supposed to move in to his new apartment next week but now will be moving at the crack of dawn on Monday so he can take an afternoon flight to Nevada. I thought we'd have more time together but instead we've had one week, a week in which we've both had to work full time and pack his entire apartment up for the move. I know it is not his fault and that he has no control over the situation but I'm still really unhappy about all this. Third of all, what the heck am I going to do for four weeks by myself? I don't do well with solitude so I might actually go crazy. Or I'll work the entire freaking time in hopes of distracting myself from how lonely I am.
